Mr. Trump. How are you? How are you? Happy New Year! Happy New Year to you. Hi! And, by the way, congratulations on another season of The Apprentice. And it just went on on Thursday night and it was number one for the week. There you go. How do you deal with those mess you've got working with you? What a crew you've got. I have some crew. This time I have some crew. That's Steven [Inaudible]. Yeah, Steven's a lot different than I thought. He's more solid than I thought. I thought he was a total flake and he's [Inaudible]. Yeah. No, he's not a bad guy. No, he's good. I like Steven. Hey, listen, we don't want to take up a lot of your time but we're doing the news here and I said "I'm going to call Mr. Trump." Okay. To find out the answer to this. It is reported that the president of France has left his wife. He's divorced. He's divorced and he's taken up with Carla Bruni. Right Who's a beautiful woman. I have a picture of her in a bikini they picked today. I don't know if you saw on the paper. Yes very flat-chested women. Not your kind of woman, Howard. Well, wait a second, Robin says that she broke up you and Marla Maples. No, that's not true. That's what it says here, this little account I'm reading. Oh, is that true? That is not true. It's not true that Carla Bruni... Okay, why did... I question was... Did you date her? Did you date her? May I say no comments? No. Let me just say no comment. I'm trying to be a diplomat for this country. But why would you say... As a great diplomat... Howard, as a great diplomat for this country, let me just say no comment. No, but I don't understand something. I Carla Bruni... I mean, from the picture I'm looking... Yes, I know Carla. She is a magnificent beauty. It looks like in the picture. Is she not that hot? Well, let's say that there are better by large margins. Because I said to Robin "Why would Donald Trump stop banging Carla Bruni? She looks magnificent in this picture." Well, you stop when you meet somebody better. So, that's when you met your wife. Well, it's a complicated thing but I know Carla and I just don't want to comment on it. Was she bad in bed? I can't comment. Why? She's going to marry the president of France. So what? She must have gotten better. This guy has gone crazy. I want to have good relationships with France, right? I don't want to be criticizing the first lady of France. But are you shocked that this guy has fallen... He's a [Inaudible]. I'm a little surprised but I'm happy for both of them. What turned you off? I think he's somebody that's really terrific and he's pro of the United States. I don't want to make them anti of the United States. No, this will never get out any further than this show. It won't get out any... than your five million viewers. No, it won't. Listen to me, I really want a true answer. What turns you off to Carla Bruni? I can't comment on that. This is crazy. You know what? I'll tell you why I can't. I think her ass smells. I know her well but I can't comment on that because I want to have good relationships with the wonderful country of friends. What does that mean? You mean you want to have buildings built there? Maybe. Yeah, I'll build a building right smack in the middle of Paris. You have to keep this quiet. We still have leverage. I get zoning all over the world. Why would you be afraid to speak? I mean, really, this isn't going to affect your relationship. He's going to dump her. You think he's going to do dump her? If you found something, I'm sure he's going to find the same thing. He may find the same thing. I don't know what he's going to find but I hope they're happy together. You know, Donald, you should tear down that Eiffel Tower and put up a casino. Well, do you know originally they wanted to tear down the Eiffel Tower? Do you know the Eiffel Tower was built just during the world fair? Yeah, it was a temporary structure. It was a temporary structure. Is that true? Yeah. People went crazy. They considered it to be the ugliest thing that was ever built. There were riots in the street and it was going to be ripped down and they had budgetary problems ripping it down. So, they said "Let's do it next year." Then they said "Let's do it next year." Then all of a sudden people started liking it and it stands today. And it was like in the 1800s. You're driving me crazy. I want to know what's wrong with Carla Bruni. I think that was a very interesting dialogue. Yeah but I want to know what's wrong. I hear you're trying to get Tavern on the Green. I mean, we'll see what happens. It'd be nice if you good food in there. It's run poorly. Yeah. Run poorly. The owner was a great friend of mine and he ran it. That was his baby. That was his child and he ran it great. And since then, and it happens often, with children, he's got children, they take over a business and that's the end of that. What are you trying to say, Donald? Hopefully my children [Inaudible]. Typically, typically that happens. You've heard about that before. Well, why can't Tavern on the Green have great food? I would go there all the time. It should have great food and it should have carpet that's not threadbare. Right. Did you walk [Inaudible]. Yeah, it's a beautiful spot. [Inaudible] thousand years. It started about the time of the Eiffel Tower. What do you have to do to get to take control? I don't know. I mean, I know how to... I have the Wollman Rink and I have a long-term lease on the Wollman Rink and we run that really well and it's a huge success. I mean Saturday you have lines going back through Central Park. It's incredible. So, you have a couple of people competing with you to get the lease for Tavern on the Green? In life, unfortunately, you always have competition. So, how close are... I don't know. I mean, it will go out to bid and there'll be other people and we'll see but they like me because I do such a good job with the rink. You're not hopeful? Huh? Are you hopeful? Do you have any contacts in the city, Howard? I do. I actually do. I had a rest stop named after me. [Inaudible]. Okay. So, you're refusing to comment. This is very strange. No, I know Carla but I think it's inappropriate for me to comment about her. I'd love to know the back story. Man, he's going to get a good deal. Come on. And I like... I really... So, what's it? Was it the personality? I really do. I think he's a terrific guy. He's very, very pro the United States. No, I agree with you. That's the first time that's ever happened with France. I agree. I like this guy like what he's saying about the United States but aside from him, I'm just talking Carla Bruni stuff. I'm talking women now. Why didn't she work out with you? I just don't think it's appropriate. It's probably just a her and a you thing. I'd rather not... I mean, because I just don't think it's appropriate. She probably laid there like a fish, right? I won't comment. Or was it her personality? It's the whole thing. I mean, it's fine. I mean, I hope he's happy. Did she smell? Huh? Did she smell? I don't want to comment on that. Ah, ah, that's a yes. Come on, Donald. You're talking about the potential first lady. She's not marrying him. He's not going to rush. No, it sounds to me like he's smitten. No, he's going to date her and he's going to do what he'll do. If he doesn't marry her, he's never going to be able to run France. It sounds to me like he's smitten. He's not a chest man. He is not into the world of chests. She's flat as a board? What is she, an A-cup? Maybe. What comes before A? A minus. A minus. [Inaudible] like a dude. Just to get off this subject, hey Robin, when are you getting married? I'm not going to. We're looking at '08, of course, this year. We're looking at maybe the fall. Well, I hope I'm going to be invited to that wedding. That'll be a great wedding. Let me tell you... You really want to go? Yes, I would come if you invite. I'm [Inaudible] impression. Not going to have a wedding. Howard, is that a good sign... By the way, are you proud of me that The Apprentice became the number one show? Yeah, I said on the air the other day. I said god bless you. I said I think it's great. I said if you could take that crew and make a number one out of it, it's amazing. I said then you're worth your weight in gold. Okay. So, you are getting married in '08. '08, probably in the fall. Will you or will you not have a prenuptial agreement? We will. That's already been discussed. You have to have that. But you haven't started working on it. Do you think he'd be happier with a prenuptial agreement? You know, I watched him on Larry King before he got married. Who? Paul McCartney. Larry King asked him "So, Paul, will you have a prenuptial agreement?" He said "Absolutely not. Absolutely not." He's nuts. That poor bastard [Inaudible]. She only wants 250 million [Inaudible] couple of years of marriage. And you know what, he really blew it. I mean what a dumb move. I don't get the whole deal. I didn't get it from day one but now I really don't get it. So, It's one of those things. I have to go back. Go ahead. When you're ready to talk to me about Carla Bruni? If I ever want to talk to anybody about Carla, I will talk to you, okay? Thank you. Thank you very much. Bye, Donald. He bankrolled Bruni but what happened?
